Self-employment Income Support Scheme
As noted below, HMRC have launched an online tool for individuals to check if they are eligible for the self-employment income support scheme, available click here. If you are eligible, the online tool will tell you the date you will be able to make a claim from and ask you to add your contact details.
You will need to enter your Government Gateway user ID and password. Where we have completed your Self-Assessment Tax Return, we complete this through our Agent ID, so we will not have your individual Government Gateway user ID. Therefore, if you do not have an existing Government Gateway user ID and password you should create one now: Click here You will need some basic information to hand to enable you to register including your name and an email address. HMRC will also need to confirm your identity so you will need to enter your National Insurance number and may need to answer some security questions based on information HMRC know about you.
